Con­tem­po­rary folk singer Kal­liopi Vetta and mu­si­cian Haig Yazd­jian, who blends tra­di­tional and mod­ern sounds, teamed up sev­eral months back for ap­pear­ances at dif­fer­ent venues around Greece with a show that both high­lights their in­di­vid­ual ca­reers and bridges their dis­parate el­e­ments. Vetta is best known for in­ter­pret­ing the work of Mikis Theodor­akis, but has also worked with Ni­cola Pio­vani, Loreena McKen­nitt, Philippe Eidel, Ge­orge Dalaras, Mario Fran­goulis and Charles Du­toit, among oth­ers. Syr­ian-born Yazd­jian, mean­while, has been liv­ing in Greece for the past 20 years and is largely re­spon­si­ble for ex­pos­ing lo­cal au­di­ences to the mu­sic of Ar­me­nia, the land of his fore­bears. The pair will be per­form­ing at the Re­mati Theater in Ha­lan­dri on Wednesday, July 26, in an ad­mis­sion-free show that starts at 9 p.m. Re­ma­tia Theater, Profi­tis Ilias Street, tel 210.689.7459
